There are few people who are as fastidious with their health as Amanda. Despite her dedication to staying fit and healthy, and attending the dentist regularly, she found her teeth aging at an accelerated rate. The deterioration was concerning and she didn’t know why.

On the surface Amanda’s teeth looked quite nice.  However a closer looked revealed a lot of lifestyle damage.  Dr Andrea Shepperson diagnosed dental erosion – acid attack that dissolves tooth enamel.  The culprit – lemon juice in water, used as a health tonic.

Amanda’s Concerns

Digital Smile Design

The aim is to create a smile design that expresses the patient’s personality and lifestyle, ensuring harmony between the restorations and the patient’s physical appearance, values, and attitudes. Amanda has an out-going, optimistic and creative personality. Her natural teeth had triangular shapes and we developed these in her design.

Porcelain veneers and crowns were constructed using DSD as our guide. The outcome was a smile rejuvenation that complemented her natural beauty.
